This set of small wool combs with the 3 row fine headsets are designed for many of the fleeces we have available to us in Australia including alpaca and merino.
The headsets are aluminium and the tines are precision machined from stainless steel. The first row has 14 x 2.2mm tines set 2.7mm apart and the working area is 7 cm wide and 9.5 cm high.
The timber we use is recycled Blackwood and is sourced from a local mill.
There are optional interchangeable headsets available in 3 row standard, 3 row ultrafine or 4 row ultrafine.
You can process stronger fibres on this comb set, you just can’t do as much due to resistance.
Combing removes the vegetable matter, second cuts etc by trapping it behind or between the tines. Combed fibres are aligned parallel to make a smooth worsted or semi worsted yarn.
Combs are a perfect way to blend colours and texture. They can be used on their own or with a blending hackle. You have total control over the amount of colour and the proportion of each that are going to work in your roving.
